Additional Information : All that glistens is not gold. As much as it hurts me to divulge this as a dyed in the wool Scotsman, every thistle shaped glass or decanter was not made in Edinburgh

The thistle pattern was introduced to the Edinburgh and Leith flint glass company around the same time that it was purchased by the notable English manufacturers Thomas Webb of Stourbridge. This is not a coincidence, Webb's rival Richardsons had been producing an alternative thistle pattern from 1880 to 1900.
